NFL  > General NFL  > Papa John sort of creeps me out.....
September 13, 2013, 12:38 PM
OK the sponsorship between Papa John and the NFL is freaking me out. That Papa John (PJ) looks weird, he must have had some plastic surgery or something. He's the stiffest (STS) actor and has no business being in his commercials. He's more awkward than even Eli M. The piece with R Eisen last night that we had to see about 10 times where PJ blah blah blahs at warp speed for about ten seconds than HAS to sip from the Pepsi (another shameless promotion within the Pizza promotion) is enough to make me sick. I hear that Domino's is better now and I am going that way rather than put more money in that sleazy wierd PJ's pocket. I wouldn't let that guy near my kids! Well they're in their twenties now so would give him some smack down if he touched them but you know what I mean...... Who else thinks this guy is the worst actor in a commercial that dominates sports?

M2, yes for the most part they are not very good, but they are also not very expensive--get what you pay for. If I'm getting a boxed pizza then I am for the most part looking for easy food. You must get his ads up there though?
Pats didn't look so good last night. Wins a win but two tough ones. Generally division games are all hard fought.

most pj pizza ads have the founder in the ad, including the one with mannning. heard peyton is now a big franchise owner, too.

That is total a55!!!! Like you said you shut it off, next click here (hear) we go again!!! Quite often it is not related to the message board you are on. Total pain in the a55.

Trying to be polite--yeah he is way creepy, even my wife walking by in passing and sees the screen and says "whats wrong with that guy?"
You gonna try and sell me a pizza and tell me you are working on it yourself then ditch the heavy starched PFG dress shirt with sleeves rolled up. I believe you are involved in production about as much as I believe that the Jaguars will be in the Superbowl!!

pimply faced kids.....when I was younger we called that "pizza face"....and that was not a condition that would precipitate a pretty date to the Prom, if any prom date at all.

Papa john is very disturbing. Face lift, eyes done, under chin liposuction, botox, hair dyed jet black, vaginoplasty, tons of makeup, but still a ****

Jacks Pizza is the best - works with Pepperoni, Sausage, Onions, Green Peppers.
